Episode 80: The Questions I Get Asked


This week I go over some questions I was recently asked by a school district as they get ready to launch there 1:1 program next year.

Leave a comment on our Flipgrid or reach out to me personally if you’d rather.

Episode 57: Rethinking PD for Teachers


As we continue our 1:1 Summer of Fun one of questions always come back to Professional Development for educators and how do we do it right. According to research done by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation called “Teachers Know Best: Teachers views on Professional Development” (http://k12education.gatesfoundation.org/resource/teachers-know-best-teachers-views-on-professional-development/). Schools are not doing a very good job and most educators feel like PD is a hoop that needs to be jumped through. As educators why are not better at offering PD for our teachers.

In this episode I chat with Tyler Rablin who’s school district is rethinking PD in the face of the Internet and trying to find a way to give teachers more choice and voice in their PD options.
